ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news Monday, saying it's a 5-year deal.

"In our meetings he displayed great insight into what this roster can accomplish, and great passion about our city and the team's role in bringing people together", Mr. Gores said.

Reigning NBA Coach of the Year Dwane Casey.

The Pistons parted ways with former head coach Stan Van Gundy in early May after four seasons with the club upon missing the playoffs for the second straight season.

Casey himself was sacked from the Raptors after the Cavaliers swept them in the Eastern Conference playoffs after seven seasons in Toronto. "He embodies our culture and will be a great representative for our franchise". The last time the Pistons made the postseason they were swept in the first round by the Cavaliers in 2016. The 61-year-old finished his tenure as the team's winningest coach but could never get it over the hump in the playoffs.

"After careful consideration, I have decided this is a very hard but necessary step the franchise must take", Ujiri said in a press release.
